Description

Medications can be a lifeline to good health...or a disaster waiting to happen-especially for older adults.  When doses are skipped, or too much medication is taken, the results can be devastating.  Join TMC head clinical pharmacist Eric Bergstrom, PharmD, as he shares some of the most common mistakes made when taking medications.  Does 3 times per day mean exactly every 8 hours?  Does once a day mean any time during the day?  Does it make a difference if you take different medications at the same time?...and more.  Bring your current med bottles from 10:30am-12pm for one-on-one pharmacist consultations.

DISPOSE-A-MED Take Back Event will be at Senior Services to provide a free, safe, secure medication disposal from 10am-12pm.

DROP OFF: Any expired/unneeded/unused prescription or over-the-counter meds like vitamins in tablet, capsule form, etc.

NO: liquids, cremes, inhalation/aerosol, sharps

**Senior Services Classroom is equipped with the Hearing Loop**
